You’re hearing plenty of Christmas songs on the radio, out and about shopping, at the doctor’s office…with the big day just around the corner, it’s basically everywhere. Well, here’s some more! 🙂
These are a few songs that I heard growing up every year and remind me the most of Christmas. Enjoy and happy holidays!
Donny Hathaway – “This Christmas”
This is THE Christmas song. Period.
The Temptations – “Silent Night”
After the Donny Hathaway song, I have the fondest memories of hearing this song while trimming the tree. It’s so soulful, you just can’t help but feel it.
Ray Charles – “Merry Christmas Baby”
The godfather of rhythm & blues as we know it, doing the Beach Boys. This is truly a gift.
Eartha Kitt – “Santa Baby”
I’m not sure what’s more impressive: the fact that she made a Christmas song sexy or that no one cares she did. There was no one quite like Eartha Kitt.
Jackson 5 – “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”
Another one of those covers that is so classic, people forget this isn’t the original.
A Charlie Brown Christmas – “Christmas Time Is Here”
I mean, this has to be on the list, right?
